This is a lovely bottling and I got the nose as soon as I opened the sample. The fruit is there especially coconut that I love in the rums from Barbados followed by the wood and spices in near perfect harmony. The empty glass will release the most wonderful flavours after and hour or so and even the day after you still get some of the flavours. Price to quality is OK.

Comparable à certain l’esprit, bouteille un peu cher mais belle longueur, un côté fruité (mûre) en millieu de bouche assez rare sur le FS. J’aime beaucoup mais je n’achète pas la bouteille
